AMG CLS 53 4MATIC+ Coupe
Performance for a beautiful new era.
There’s never been a car quite like the CLS. The new AMG CLS 53 takes its distinction to even greater degrees, with a 429-hp turbocharged inline-6 with EQ Boost. And it wraps advanced new tech in seductively fresh style.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. Developed for AMG’s racecars, patented NANOSLIDE cylinder walls cut friction, raising endurance and power.
An all-new inline-6 teams a twin-scroll turbo and electric auxiliary compressor to output 429 hp, further augmented by a 21-hp EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator. The result is a seamless torrent of torque that can thrust the CLS 53 from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.5 seconds.
Variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+ sends the engine’s power to the wheels that can use it best to apply power and return agility. From launch grip to powering out of corners, 4MATIC+ can vary the torque split from AWD to 100% RWD2
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune the car’s performance character via a single console control. Five driving modes, including one you can customize for yourself, vary the throttle response, gear changes, steering, suspension and more from Comfort to Sport+.
AMG RIDE CONTROL+ is an advanced air suspension that offers an ideal blend of confidence, competence, and comfort. Its adaptive damping responds in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. Automatic lowering at higher speeds helps enhance stability and efficiency.
The CLS 53 cockpit wraps driver-focused control in artfully crafted furnishings. Beyond a spectrum of leathers and eight trim options, 64-colour LED ambient lighting plus available Drive-Dynamic front seats and new ENERGIZING Comfort let you continue to tailor the cabin to your driving desires.
Standard 19-inch AMG wheels, or any of four 20-inch options, take a bold stance on handling and style. Exterior styling packages let you render elements of the front apron and the tailpipes in black, and the mirrors and rear spoiler in racing-derived carbon fibre.
Offered in three styles, the AMG Performance steering wheel features contoured side grips and a 12 o’clock band. Clever touchpads put a world of information under your thumbs. Silver shift paddles keep gear changes fingertip-close.
A subtle yet highly effective rear spoiler and lower diffuser are aerodynamically shaped for added rear-axle downforce. Four polished tailipipes with a new round design play the exuberant crescendos of the standard sport-tuned exhaust or available multimode AMG Performance Exhaust.

1 Stated rates of acceleration are based upon manufacturer’s track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.
2 No system, regardless of how advanced, can overcome the laws of physics or correct careless driving. Please always wear your seat belt. Performance is limited by available traction, which snow, ice and other conditions can affect. Always drive carefully, consistent with conditions. Best performance in snow is obtained with winter tires.
